Clowning Around (Flute Choir)
Clowning Around (Flute Choir) By Katherine Hoover, Published by Papgena Press.
Score and Part(s)
Instrumentation: 4 Flutes, Percussion, Alto Flute.
Hoover's latest opus for multiflutes is presented as a quartet, but is designed for any number of flutes. In fact, its first appearance was in Central Park (New York), and its first performance was at the 2011 NFA Convention, with all attendees invited to join in. An optional alto flute part was added, as well as a percussion line. Hoover even suggests that, "with the steady rhythm and light nature of this piece, the percussion part may be better performed by a tap dancer! For intermediate to advanced.
